May 2012

May 17, 2012 - Combined Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Mel Torme, Dinah Washington, and Django Reinhardt into a playlist... put it on shuffle and enjoy the mix. Oh, and accompanied by scotch and cigar, of course.

Quick A's update - they split their series with LA Angels and Texas this week. Which means they head into tomorrow's Bay Bridge series with Giants at 1 game over .500. Seriously, anybody who predicted this smattering of success at the start of the season would have been laughed at. The Athletics may be one of the better teams without a serious shot at the playoffs. Entertaining too...

By the way, that's your second from the bottom in payroll Oakland A's ($55M) splitting wins with LAA ($154M) and Texas ($120M). All the more sweet!
